Make a plan
Plan the book. Make an outline of the story. It has to be fixed enough that everyone that joins is able to follow the story, to make connections between one scene to the next. But fluid enough to allow for all the writers to leave their mark, to allow each writer to use his own voice. Difficult? Indeed. Impossible? We think not.
Find the Writers
No book without writers. So we will use social media—Facebook, Reddit, Twitter – and give a shout out for writers to join us. A recruitment drive of like-minded individuals that want to join our tribe and write The Book of 100.
Each Writer to Each Scene
Then all the writers placed in the outline. The first writer writes the very first scene. And as the writer completes the scene, they pass it on to the next writer who then writes the next scene. A relay of writing talent and a race to the end. Time is running out.
The First Draft is Complete
Once the first draft is finished we send it off for editing. An unenviable job to edit the work of one hundred writers in one manuscript but we believe it can be done.
Writing is Rewriting
Once all the necessary rewrites and edits are done, the editors take another look. Hopefully, we are closer to a completed novel. Time is running out.
A Book Cover
We find a designer to create the cover for The Book of 100.
The Book of 100 is prepared for publication.
The Book of 100 is published
The final draft is for sale and available to the people.
The People buy The Book of 100
We sell the book and show transparency on all sales. Everyone needs to see what the exact sales are and how much we have made.
Find a Place to Plant a Forest
With the professional help of forestry commissions and forestry experts we choose the perfect location to grow a forest.
No forest without trees. Using the money that we received from sales of The Book of 100 we buy trees.
Team of Planters
We need people to plant the trees. We need experts to do this. We have to pay them to help us grow the forest.
The Forest grows
We cannot results in the next few months. Trees grow their entire life. An oak tree takes fifty years to grow only twenty metres. But it is a beginning.
